Detail

Over 70 children may access the Early Years Foundation Stage provision at Highbridge Children’s Centre at any given time. The centre’s ethos is to encourage children to be highly independent, selecting activities for themselves and taking responsibility for day-to-day nursery tasks. At the same time, each child has a member of staff who takes responsibility for observing, assessing and planning their learning and development, working in partnership with the child’s parents or carers.
